There are 2 bosses/owners at my company. I work for one boss and another woman works for the other boss. The other boss's son also works for the company. The other woman was unhappy with her raise and made a stink about it. The boss's son told his dad that she was upset because I showed her my paycheck and after finding out how much more I was making became irate. (The other boss told my boss that I did this, as well.) I absolutely would never show her my paycheck. I have 20 years on this woman and have worked in HR that entire time and know that is a huge no-no. The son said that he saw me do it.
I confronted the son and asked him why he said that to his dad when it didn't happen. He denied having said it. He said that the other woman knew how much I made and was upset but he didn't tell me how she knew. I asked him to go to his dad and clear up the "misunderstanding" as this was my reputation on the line. I have been there 9 years and it is important for me to have the other boss know that he can trust me. He said he would tell him that night. The next day, the son didn't come to work. The other boss has said nothing to me about it so my guess is he didn't tell him. What do I do now?
My boss believes me so that is not an issue. I recorded the conversation that the son and I had on my phone. I would be very reluctant to ever pull that out and use it. I also think that the other woman found out how much I make by looking at my w2 when it was delivered by courier in an unsealed envelope but I can't prove that. Do I let this go if he refuses to fess up or do I put my foot down. He has lied about so many other things and I know that his dad knows he is lying about them and they must be awful for him. But this is a lie about me. I'm not ok with that.
